Yea that dew is fucking legendary. I found it early this summer and have heard it likely 50 some times since. I stumbled upon it from a grateful dead hour broadcast from 94.

At 13:55 it is one of the longest dews ever played, only behind 1973-12-02 and 1976-12-31 as far as I know. And I would guess there are maybe 2-3 else as long or longer. 1976-12-31 is the longest I know of around 14:30. If I could have say, only 5 dews, there is no way this dew would not be part of it. Likely same story if I could only have 3. Jerry's wail at 4:14 would make an american idol judge's ears bleed, but I fucking love it. There is NOTHING wrong with this dew. Its too bad the other one before and the JBG after aren't as legendary. That would be a killer concert ender.

Also, it has likely the best I've ever heard of a certain character. That is extending the high energy part at the end. Many times the jam will end too soon, before really building up, or they will exit once they hit that first ending peak. Others, can get drawn out beyond their climax (7-21-72). This one however catches me every time, I think its gonna end, but it keeps going, and getting better as they continue.

Yes, thats right, one of the best versions of a song was played in 1994.
